Jim Thorpe Signed Portrait of the Native American football legend embracing his heritage

28 Mar

Fantastic matte-finish 8 x 10 photo of Thorpe in an elaborate Native American headdress, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, “To Norman D. Money from Jim Thorpe 1940.” Encapsulated in a removable plastic PSA/DNA authentication holder grading the autograph an “8.” In fine condition, with a few small mounting remnants to reverse, a bit of mild silvering to darker areas, and a small tear to lower right edge. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA, also grading the autograph an “8.” Autographed 8 x 10 portraits of Thorpe are extremely rare, with this exceptional example being just the third we have ever offered. RR Auction COA.
